Two men detained during a bomb scare on a plane at Oakland International Airport have been released. The flight made an emergency landing around 8 a.m. Monday morning.

All 126 passengers on the Alaska Airlines flight are fine; they were taken off the plane and had to be re-screened.

Investigators did not find a bomb. The FBI says the threat was not credible.

The scare began after a clerk at a bookstore at San Francisco International Airport found a letter about a bomb threat involving the flight from Seattle to Oakland.

"Policemen came aboard and took two suspects off the flight and from that point they took us to re-screen, and I will say Alaska handled it very well," said passenger Tracy Schei.

The plane is now back in service. The FBI is still trying to figure out who wrote that note.
